Curio Parachain Staking: How it Works

Curio Parachain would make use of Nominated Proof-of-Stake for selecting the validator set. It is designed with the roles of validators and nominators, to maximize chain security. Actors who are interested in maintaining the network can run a validator node. At genesis, Curio Parachain will have a limited amount of slots available for these validators, but this number will grow over time to over one thousand.

The system encourages CGT holders to participate as nominators. Nominators may back up to 8 validators as trusted validator candidates. Validators assume the role of producing new blocks, validating parachain blocks, and guaranteeing finality. Nominators can choose to back select validators with their stake.

The staking system pays out rewards essentially equally to all validators regardless of stake. Having more stake on a validator does not influence the number of block rewards it receives. However, there is a probabilistic component to reward calculations.

Distribution of the rewards is pro-rata to all stakers after the validator payment is deducted. In this way, the network incentivize the nomination of lower-staked validators to create an equally-staked validator set.
